5 ways to Add Personality to Your Home
Have you just bought a new home, or simply wondering how you can make your rented place feel a bit more ‘you’? Personality plays an important role in our lives and reminds us of who we are as people. So why not adapt this to your home? Display your favourite trinkets you've picked up from your travels, repaint your granddad's old chair and add a few plants! Make your personality SHINE through with these great tips you can do at home.
Upcycle recycled furniture
Create some timeless pieces for your home by upcycling old furniture. Create gorgeous wall displays and shelves with old crates. All you need to do is sand, paint and finish then you're good to go! Wood is a brilliant material to work with. Go wild with your artistic side and use leftover samples as coasters. Do you have some old chairs knocking around in your garage? Try updating your old chairs with a touch of colour and pattern to add personality to your dining area. Who doesn’t love a new look?
Embrace your green side by bringing the outside in and enrich your space with house plants. Did you know that nature can reduce stress and improve your mental well-being? Adding plants and flowers will help brighten up your home. Take a trip to the garden centre and pick up some bright and beautiful plants. Greenery helps your house come alive. If you’re not brilliant at watering them, buy some faux plants. No one will ever notice.
Dress up your bed
Not only do pillows make great sleeping partners, but they also dress up your furniture. Decorative pillows are a great way to bulk up your bed and make it look pretty. Fluffy, soft and suede-like cushions are great if you want to add texture. Are you looking for some sophistication? Large, white pillows with black lining are a great addition to the bed if you’re going for a minimalist look. Don’t forget to add throws and blankets to add some personality too. Not only do they keep you warm, but they also look great with plain bedsheets if you’re looking to inject some colour into your space.

Wallpaper is one of the main things that can make the most impact on your plain room. Some rooms in your home may not have much going for them. Adding wallpaper can enhance texture as well as colour and pattern. Don't be afraid to go wild! Try wallpaper that resembles stone, wood, brick and marble. Any of these will add personality to any room of your home. Velvet wallpaper can add some luxury to your living space. Pair with matching cushions and rugs to bring colours and patterns together. Don’t forget to hang pictures and various pieces of art decor to remind yourself of your achievements and what you love.
